Teaching modern quilting is one of my passions.

I love providing lectures or leading modern quilting workshops at guild meetings and local quilt shops nationwide.

My workshops are suitable for all levels of quilters, and they are an excellent introduction for quilters who are curious about modern quilting trends. I coach workshop attendees in combining improvisational techniques with a planned layout. Each workshop project is as creative or as structured as the quilter desires, and I can create a customized version of any of my workshops for your group.

Quilt WorkshopRave reviews from workshop attendees:

I enjoyed watching Carole select fabric, demonstrate piecing, and quilt a sample, showing the group her style and skill. Her encouraging feedback enabled us to create with our own hearts. Thanks, Carole! — Alison

Carole’s teaching style is excellent.  She offers insightful advice when you ask for it, but she also leaves you alone and lets your creative juices flow when that is what you need. I would do this retreat again in a heartbeat.  — Julie C.

I enjoyed EVERYTHING about the retreat! I loved how you spent time with each of us helping to plan our quilt, offering a different view of both colors and layout. I really enjoyed the talks one-on-one. You helped me understand the concept of ‘negative space’ and how to use it, and I really understood the concept of modern quilting. I’m having great fun using this knowledge at home working on my own designs. Thank you!  — Debbie
